Title:Storying Research: Conducting Research in New Formats and New Voices
Author(s):Anderson, Theresa Dirndorfer; Åström, Fredrik; Francke, Helena; Hartel, Jenna; Kjellberg, Sara
Subject(s):research practice
scholarly publishing
Abstract:The session engages with an acute tension evident in scholarly communication: We are witnessing a great deal of innovation and experimentation in relation to the way research is performed and shared. The push towards, and need for, innovation and creativity in academic research is being emphasized to an ever increasing extent. A rich set of digital tools and transdisciplinary engagements have opened the door for research conducted and reported in increasingly hybridised, dynamic and interactive ways. At the same time, academic research is increasingly being evaluated by focusing on quantitative analyses based on publications; analyses which privilege established scholarly practices and publication venues. In the session, we are interested in exploring collectively on the one hand, the voice in and position from which we report on research and - indeed - conduct research. On the other hand, how do we use documents and artefacts to tell our stories? Digital media provide new affordances through a broader selection of modes of representation to present data, results and argumentation. The session is conducted as a `conversation café', where each café table focuses on one aspect of these opportunities.
